In brief: Generally yes

The cd4 lymphocyte is one of the main targets of this virus.
If you are treating effectively and reducing the numbers of virus (which can actually be measured and is used in determining treatment), will allow recovery of the cd4 counts, and with this, improvement of immune function.
